Top director Shankar has sacked Manikandan, the cameraman of Anniyan and replaced him with Ravi Varman.

It is a major blow to Manikandan, the upcoming cinematographer who has been an assistant to many ace cameramen before he shot to fame with the Sharukh Khan blockbuster Main Hoon Na directed by Farah Khan.

Shankar had signed him for Anniyan seeing his work and Manikandan had given six months bulk dates to the director. But when Shankar asked for three more months Manikandan packed his bags, as he feels that he will make more money doing ad films.

Shankar is always slow in his work and always re-shoots the scenes causing hardship to his cameramen. Ravi.K.Chandran had also almost walked out of Boys in disgust due to Shankar’s working style.
